Kerala and its people are facing a silent disaster. One which is affecting the lives of the current and coming generations. The general public is not aware or seems ignorant on this topic. The students of today know more about drugs than sports or studies. And these are not isolated incidents like we would like to believe. The number of students dependent on such substances is huge. And what is more disturbing is that it is increasing at an alarming rate. Family problems and lack of emotional support combined with the huge inflow of drugs into the state has laid the trap for unassuming teenagers.
Little to no attention is given to this issue even while the future citizens are being mentally and physically affected. Students from ages as low as 10 are being found to be dependent on such substances. Teachers find these kids hard to control at school and parents at home. The sad part is that most of these children are from families with low financial backing.
Our agency has been working in this field for the past 10 years. We connect with these children by working through government and government-aided schools. As these schools or the children there will not be able to afford such training programs from other agencies, all our training programs are provided to the children free of cost. Over the years, we have been able to provide training for around 3000 children with 300 to 400 children being attended to each year. Statistical analysis shows that 82% of our children have been able to take back control of their lives.
Our training methodology includes a weekly follow-up session conducted by a project officer, who is a trained MSW graduate, a three day residential camp at our institution, training from external trainers etc. The students also conduct different activities at their schools under the guidance of the project officer appointed there.
For conducting our training sessions and three-day residential camps and also for rehabilitating the children, we need a building with the required facilities. Our activities and training programs can be effectively conducted only with an apt environment for the children. We humbly request your support for this initiative and thank you.
